Celebrating the Coronation of His Majesty, King Charles III

Monday, 8 May 2023


To celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty, King Charles III, ACCA’s Surry Hills Service Centre held a Coronation Morning Tea with the Cantonese Aged Day Centre Group on Wednesday 3rd May, 2023. The hall was decked out in Coronation bunting consisting of Union Jacks, Australian flags, balloons, table decorations and the official Coronation emblem.

To start the proceedings on behalf of the Board and the ACCA family, the group was welcomed by ACCA President, Mr Tim Feng. Mr Feng paid his respects to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on her passing whose memory will live long amongst the ACCA family. However, this day was a day for celebration, so with encouragement from ACCA’s Board and with the support of ACCA’s Management team, the Surry Hills Service Centre’s CHSP Coordinators and volunteers organised a “British Themed” morning tea with biscuits, cakes, scones, group activities and of course, lots of tea !

Before the fun and entertainment began, the group was privileged to hear a special video message from Her Excellency the Hon Margaret Beazley AC KC, Governor of New South Wales who is a Joint Patron of ACCA together with her husband Mr Dennis Wilson. On this historic occasion, Her Excellency, offered a special greeting to the members of ACCA’s Cantonese Aged Day Centre Group and thanked ACCA’s members for generously providing services to the Australian Chinese Community since 1974.

The day group then proceeded to enjoy their group activities, they also designed their own crown whilst watching a video of the life of King Charles III. The CHSP Coordinators and Volunteers put on a fabulous and entertaining morning tea, the Board and Management thanked them for making the day an outstanding success.
